the stretch. >> this is not the time to double down on trickle-down government policies that have failed us. it's time for new bold changes that measure up to the moment and can bring american families the certainty that the future will be better than the past. >> rachel brings up a good point which is it is now an economic argument focused on states like ohio. we're going to talk to governor kasich in a moment, 7% unemployment in that state. so how much credit does the president deserve for improving conditions in important battleground states? >> well, that important battleground state has a republican governor. that's done exactly the opposite of what obama claims he's going to do. that is, he's lowered taxes and closed budget deficits. but i actually find the trust argument very odd because president obama promised that we would have 4.2% economic growth right now. we have 2%. he promised an unemployment rate that would be far below where it is today. he hasn't delivered on his promises. on the issue of trust, what is going on with regard to libya? i mean here we have an extraordinary t
been so important to obama running so well in ohio. it's a choice -- either government should just sit by and let the market do its thing or government can come in and correct certain outcomes and prevent catastrophe. that's the kind of choice we face in this election. >> if you want to talk about trust. what obama is talking about on the trail, first of all, there's no second-term agenda. when he goes off the record with the "des moines register" last week. he gave out a second-term agenda which is nothing like he's been talking about on the trail. >> that's not true at all. >> the corporate tax rates. talking about weeding out immigration. talking about immigration reform, which he has not talked about much in public and a grand bargain with cutting spending $2.50 for every $1 of tax revenue. >> did you see his proposal he's put on the table? >> you want to talk about being factually accurate. it's factually inaccurate it say that governor romney was against the rescue of the auto industry. if you read his entire op-ed. you guys are journalists, i assume you believe that words are im
and the government federal response. what do you think of the federal response now? has it been good? this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >>> my message to the federal government, no bur rak eaucracy red tape, get resources where they are needed as fast as possib possible. >> president obama has put disaster relief in high gear as millions across the east coast are in peril. >> the cooperation has been outstanding. >> romney's silence has been deafening. >> would you eliminate aid to fema if you were president? >> as hurricane sandy wreaks havoc across the northeast, first responders, nurses and neighbors have stepped up in tremendous acts of heroism. we'll take a look at these brave men and women tonight. but first we'll bring you the latest on the disaster across the northeast. >> good to have you with us tonight. thanks for watching. the aftermath of sandy is coming into focus and the destruction is heartbreaking. sandy's path devastated miles of shoreline and major communities. officials in nine states are reporting 44 deaths related to the storm. 23 of those here in the state of new york.
so well in ohio. it's a choice. either government should sit by and let the market do its thing or govern comes in and prevents catastrophe. it's the kind of choice we face. >> if you want trust, what obama is talking about on the trail. first of all, there's no second term agenda. when he goes off the record, he gives out an agenda that's nothing like what he's been talking about on the trail. >> it's not true at all. >> immigration. he's talked immigration reform which he's not talked about much in public. cutting $2.50 for every tax dollar in revenue. it's not what he's been running. >> if you want to talk about being factually accurate, it's factually inaccurate to say governor romney was against the rescue of the auto industry. if you read his op-ed, you are journalist, you believe words are important. what he says is he believes the government should have provided financial guarantees. the difference between governor romney and president obama is who gets to stand first in line to get paid off. >> money in the market that was going to go into the auto industry. >> that's w
." >>> good government, good politics. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this, i can't think of a better job than helping the american people defend themselves. fortunately for president obama, that's his job this week. he signed up for it, and now it needs doing. there's no walking away from it, nothing that takes precedence over putting his head and heart into ensuring the absolute best of his ability that people in the northeast part of the country recover and begin to reconstruct from this natural emergency that's come down on it, and every second this president applies himself, the most he must hope that the electoral momentum will shift in his direction because these several days will test if the president shares the hope on which he's built his public life. here is the latest on sandy's devastating impact. this storm has been blamed for at least 38 deaths so far. there's new video this afternoon showing the massive destruction along the new jersey shore. governor chris christie called the impact on his state

opportunists who will try to take advantage of instability and destabilizing influence and nascent governments or failing governments. and these opportunists are maybe unpredictable. and i always use iraq as an example. there's lots of opportunists in iraq. iran, turkey, saudi arabia, kuwait, nonstate actors. all opportunists trying to take advantage of a situation. how does that project itself around the world? what does that mean to us as we look at the future of conflict? the cast of conflict is changing, the operational environment and conflict is changing, but in my mind the fundamental nigh ture of war remains the same. that's the struggle to influence populations and governments. that has not changed. so it's how we continue to understand that struggle within the new operational environment and context that we see it. the army was created 237 years ago to defend this great nation and in my opinion that imperative has not changed. so as i adapt the force for foot ture, the one thing i tell everyone is that we are starting from a position of strength. why do i say that? because the army s

the idea of an expansive activist federal government -- that's obama, of course -- and a minimal, smaller, shrinking federal government, that's mitt romney. so for all the talk of bipartisanship we've heard in the last two weeks from both candidates, there's not a lot of bipartisanship out there. >> when you speak to republican voters, you've been out around the country a lot, there is a real sense that they are very angry with what's this president has done to the country in terms of expanding government. do democrats feel the same about what mitt romney would do if he were president? >> they do, although in a sense it's a bit below the surface, since they're not experiencing it right now. but we have a similar experience under george w. bush, who tried briefly to governor as a kind of bipartisan moderate, but then turned markedly conservative. so in those days you have the same kind of democratic rage against that republican president that you now have in reverse. it's very difficult to see where the middle ground would be for either of these candidates, and it won't be any easier if we
government that's inefficient and doesn't work very well. it gives us the possibility of even higher taxes. and there's a lot of reasons i hate higher taxes, the billingest reason is i know where that money goes in that city and it's time to clean it up down there. the last thing we need is higher taxes and regulators. instead of embracing the people that give people opportunity for jobs shes they pound on us, they pound on small business people and stunt our growth. but we have another choice here tonight. and that's why there is so many people here tonight. you know it's about that american dream. you know government is not the answer. government is the last resort and not a first resort. and we know we're stronger when we run america from the bottom up. when people have more money in their pocket. when families have more wemmingt and people get jobs. and the greatest issue in america today is jobs. and the reason is mom and dad are working, the family is stronger t children are stronger. it all works for a stronger america and stronger communities. that is what mitt romney and paul ryan
, as well. the former fema director on the recovery nows underway, as government agencies prepare to re-open tomorrow. just hearing from washington, dc, the federal workers can return to their desks tomorrow but in the meantime, a real mess for rescue officials now. how long do you expect it to last in. >> i was surprised to hear the path station, for example, could be five days away, my guess it really could be longer. this is the real difficult part for people, neil, and that is le high but i remind people again, the emergency workers, the utility workers, the health care workers, all of those people want to fix this as quickly as they can. take the path station, for example. you have to first get the flood waters out assess the damage and then repair the damage. if you do that in the path station it is the same thing for a home, office, an apartment building, so people have to be patient. >>neil: you helped us last night on fox business where is the line of comand and how does it work among local state officials? i bring it up because in new jersey the governor there, chris christie,
could see, instead of being pushed aside because the government wants to take over the children, and not let the parents have anything to say -- there are other subjects as well as the middle-class. host: will give you a chance to respond to some of her comments. guest: i think she is right. all the voters should have an opportunity to look behind the ads and build into the research on the individual candidates. they should come out knowing this country needs a change in direction, and who will create the number of jobs that are necessary. i think governor mitt romney has that program, if you look at it in depth. his commitment to produce 12 million jobs over the next four years, the way this country has to do. also, to take regulation out of the small business community, so that our small businessmen, who are the real job creators, know what is going to happen over the next four years. if you look at what has happened in ohio, with governor kasich, who inherited a rainy day fund that had 23 cents in it -- the state was $8 billion in debt. he was able to balance the budget, put
, but the federal government has a role to play, a bigger role down the road, but the biggest thing is changing the subject is great for obama. he's been trying to change the subject all year. >> greta: let's talk about timing. if he changes the subject, for instance, monday night, if everyone is done early voting, doesn't matter if he changes the subject. we're a week out and the subject is being changed a week out. there's a lot of early voting going on. i'm curious if there's a thought in your mind whether the timing of the change in topic. >> well, i mean, obviously the changing of the subject that everybody doesn't have on their mind the economy and jobs, obama's policies or the failed results of those policies, instead. rightly americans are concerned about our friends in north carolina or new hampshire and everywhere in between. it's good for obama. it's not goin necessarily goingo turn the world upside down, but as i say, any day that obama's record is not in front of the american people is a relief for obama. >> greta: does it help? i don't know if you've seen the words of governor chr
